Athletic Training Adds Performing Arts to Clinical Site Opportunities
Posted: Tuesday, September 27, 2022
The Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) program has added Mercy Health Hospital in Cincinnati as a new site for immersive clinical education. With this location, students in the program now have the opportunity to work in a performing arts environment with the Cincinnati Ballet.
Adding Mercy Health Hospital will provide a new avenue for clinical rotations, as MSAT students haven’t previously been able to work with performing arts.
“We are always looking to provide our students opportunities in new and developing areas of athletic training,” said Jeff Tilly, program director and assistant professor for athletic training. “This site, along with the other locations, presents another pathway for new and exciting career opportunities.”
In addition to Mercy Health Hospital in Cincinnati, UE also has partnerships with other universities and organizations across the nation. Current locations include Kentucky Wesleyan College, Louisville City Football Club, Northwestern University, University of Florida, Vanderbilt University, and Western Kentucky University. Classes can be completed online, so there are no geographic restrictions when it comes to a student’s rotations.
